The Friends of Alexandra Park is run by a committee, and other volunteers.
Volunteering in Alexandra Park
There are several ways that volunteers can help in Alexandra Park:
The Information Centre, in The Grove, is run by our volunteers and is open on Sundays and some Saturdays.
The Friends run monthly work days in the grounds. Details are emailed to members a few weeks in advance.
We welcome any willing volunteers!
You do not need to make a long-term commitment – it
is helpful for us to know who would be happy to be contacted when help is needed, for one-off
activities such as:
- Helping to move
chairs out for a band concert
conservation work in the Park (litter and bramble clearing)
- Staffing the
Park Information Centre for a couple of hours, or occasional stalls e.g. at the
in a visitor counting and survey day (with the Trust)
For any of the above, you could Contact the Friends, or
leave your phone number at the Information Centre, so that we can compile a
list of people to contact when a specific need occurs.
Maybe you could use your specialist skills to help with
one of the following:
book and display shelves for the Park Information Centre.
and displaying information in the Park Information Centre.
and selecting photos and organising the printing of the Friends’ Calendar.
and/or leading a Park activity.
- Running the
Friends’ Facebook Page.
distributing publicity information to newspapers and websites.
